My Name is Caroline (Doubleday 1988, Gürze 1991, iUniverse 2000, Cogent Publishing 2013) is the first major autobiography by a bulimia survivor, and it resulted in hundreds of television and radio appearances by Ms. Miller, as well as international coverage in newspapers and magazines. Since 1988, Caroline has received tens of thousands of letters, calls and emails from people who say that the book saved their life and gave them the hope to start their own journey to wellness. Professionals also say that it is an invaluable tool in helping family members understand the struggles of a loved one who has an eating disorder.
The re-release of the book on the 25th anniversary of its initial publication includes book reviews, a new introduction, and a foreword from a leader in the eating disorder world who testifies to the incredible impact the book has had on shaping a generation of eating disordered individuals and the people who love and treat them. Along with its sequel, “Positively Caroline,” these two books should be in the library of anyone who wants to understand not only how to get into recovery, but also how to stay there and learn to thrive and survive in new and positive ways.
Caroline’s journey to success has garnered many admirers, including journalists Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, best-selling authors of ‘The Confidence Code,’ who say that Caroline’s story is inspiring and a testament to her confidence that she could overcome all challenges that came her way.
This book is a MUST for all professionals who examine and counsel people who admit, or deny, or conceal that they have an eating disorder - including internists and therapists who dispense psychological advice.
